This is the monthly wrap up from Jane.

I hope you’re having a spectacular February.

The majority of my time over the last month has been spent on my ebook, that I mentioned last month I was writing.

If I may, I’d love to share some details about the book with you.

The first ebook is now finished (there are two). Surprisingly, it has only taken me two months to write it. I’m a slow writer but once I started to write the book, the words just poured out. I wasn’t expecting this to happen, nor was I expecting to love the process of writing each day, but I have.

Thoughout March I’ll write the other ebook. If all goes to plan, they should be ready to launch in April.

What are they on?

Since starting www.copingwithjane.comlast year, I receive stories from women daily, about their experience of being a woman and motherhood. I’ve become an avid observer of the human condition and the real experience of being a woman in this particular time in history.

I know that for many women having a baby can cause you to redefine yourself. Judging by the amount of traffic this post had this week, you also resonate with this.

The books are essentially on this.

If you have children, you probably know that having your first baby can cause you to undergo an incredible transformation.

The book is a his and her’s guide to the new landscape for expecting parents – what you need to know when your first baby is on the way.

What was your experience of becoming a parent like?

Did you change careers or friends? How did it affect your relationship and identity? Did you encounter post-natal depression? If you’d like to share your story, I would love to publish it. Check out the contributor guidelines here.

I believe it’s important for us to share our real experiences of being a women, including pregnancy and becoming a mamma. Future mothers need to know what’s ahead and that they’re not alone.

The competitive mothering concept that is bandied about often is really just due to the pressure new mothers and mothers in general are under to be perfect.

That’s why your unique experience is important to share. And it’s also the reason why I’m writing the book – forewarned is forarmed.

So what’s been happening here this month?

Well, you’ll never guess which well known lady-preneur revealed “My secret is I outsource everything”.

If you feel like you’ve lost your style mojo, you’ll love this new CopingwithJane Web TV episode.

Until next month
